Savor the SoCal flavor

Any place where the average year-round temperature is a sunny 72 degrees deserves the nickname “America’s Finest City.” Of course, there’s only one place with that name and that enviable weather: San Diego. Last year, California’s second-largest city was ranked of the nation’s 10 best big cities to live by Money magazine. The magazine took into account its “best of all worlds” attractions, neighborhoods, low cost of living and job growth. We at FOODWORKS would add San Diego’s gorgeous beach-and-canyon landscape and laidback surfer vibe to the list.

 And we haven’t even gotten to the famed Baja fish taco. The humble combo—battered fish, cabbage and crema salsa on a fresh corn tortilla—is a San Diego original (along with the Calif burrito and the Caesar salad) that never disappoints. Wash it all down with craft beer from one of San Diego’s nearly 200 breweries. It’s the finest entry point into the city’s exciting and diverse dining scene that draws inspiration from the ocean and Mexico’s rich heritage to produce a blend of cuisine all its own. We’ll surf to that!
